Abstract
"Increasing performance of signal processing capabilities, sensors, communications links, and unmanned autonomous aircraft (UAVs) make possible a long range, highly accurate, expendable sensor field which allows precision targeting without risk of personnelloss.Acoustic detection in Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) has relied on expendable directional sensors since the 1950's. This is a DIFAR (Directional Frequency Analysis and Recording ) sensor, comprises omnidirectional and orthogonal cosine acoustic senseelements. This unit is effectively a point array sensor and capable of unambiguous bearing. Progeny Systems proposes to use its unique expertise in DIFAR sensors, digital communications, and algorithms adapted from the ASW community to enhance theprobability of detection, localization and classification of targets using acoustic sensors deployed in the tree canopy. This Phase I one study will investigate technologies and provide candidate solutions that address the needs of ACMS. The Phase IOption will present methods to develop a prototype proof of concepts platform. Progeny Systems is a systems integrator for the Submarine Advanced Processing Builds (APB) and the Advanced Undersea Warfare Concepts (AUSWC) that apply across all US Navyparticipating USW platforms. As such we anticipate to leverage expertise in systems analysis and integration with knowledge gained under this effort to develop more effective reconnaissance and monit
